Las Iguanas

​This Brazillian  restaurant  is a great choice for families, super tasty food in a very relaxed and child friendly environment.  


If you like Mexican   I can  confidentiality  say you will enjoy the food choices at Las Iguana,  spicy but not hot,  tasty food.  
Keith and I called in on Sunday afternoon and it was fairly quiet with a family celebrating a birthday tucked into the conservatory  side, a nice area where the windows continue over the ceiling  giving a lovely bright niche. Several large booths which can also accommodate a crowd make for a really family friendly venue. 


We were seated in the back where we could  see the barman mixing up the cocktails,  they do have a good cocktail menu.  We both enjoyed a Dark & Stormy, a rum based cocktail which was refreshing with lime and ginger beer and served in a jam jar. Great value too as we were there for happy hour which offers two for the price of one ( both cocktails must be the same) 


I can’t remember  what what Keith meal was called but the chicken and crayfish in a spicy peanut sauce was theatrically  presented in a large bowl placed over a warmer,  the more than genorous sized portion being kept hot until the end. I had a quinoa salad with the most delicious  cranberry salsa, that really zinged , sprinkled with some tiny, fruity, flavoursome  Chili’s and black beans. With carrot and parsnip crisps  there were some serious flavours.


Keith finished with an Aztec hot chocolate  fudge cake which is served with ice cream,  sadly it was more a warm chocolate  fudge cake but it tasted great. 
The decore  is bright colours, plastic chairs,  vibrant tiling and nothing plush or breakable so that’s why I think it’s a great choice for families with younger children.  The lavatories were clean although a little hidden away. 
After our meal we found we had about 40 minutes spare time to kill so we ordered  another drink, made with a sugar cane spirit I had it served with raspberry and crushed ice, Keith opted for the same but served with pear juice.  It was nice to find something new and this friendly restaurant  had a few surprise in store in both the food and the drinks menu. 

A lovely layered coffee, rich but oh so sweet to finish,    with the bill at £54.  Las Iguanas  was a great choice for dinner before visiting the Glee club.

    1. We have a couple of really splendid Brazilian restaurants, one of which is my husbands favorite. Such delicious meaty treats and great salad selections too. I realise we are lucky to be in our wonderful city.
